The first full trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I is debuting at Comic-Con later this week (and also exclusively on Samsung devices), but the viral campaign has been awesome with President Snow (Donald Sutherland) addressing the revolution and being interrupted by the rebels in District 13. Accompanying Snow was Johanna Mason (Jena Malone) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) and now the two are featured in a couple Capitol Citizen Living Portraits from Capitol Couture. It's pretty creepy how they're just flaunting their prisoners like this, essentially taunting the revolution in Panem. Look now!
Here are the two living portraits for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I from Capitol Couture:
The Capitol has outdone itself once again. Still basking in the stoic radiance that was last year’s stunning Capitol Portraits, we here at Capitol Couture have nevertheless been waiting eagerly for the next wave of incredible images of our cherished elite. Fresh from the excitement of the most eventful Quarter Quell to date, we are thrilled and honored to present the new Capitol Citizen Living Portraits.
As our Quarter Quell victors, Peeta Mellark and Johanna Mason hold the distinct honor of being the first Capitol citizens featured within a Living Portrait. Here we see Johanna in an exquisite Alon Livne creation that “juxtaposes the flowing drapery of classic statuary while the super modern and sculptural iridescent white bodice references the branch motif of the Panem Seal.” With plunging lines and slits as daring and divine as the warrior woman herself, every element of Johanna’s ensemble (including her Alexander Wang shoes and hand-carved marble bangles by Chen Chen and Kai Williams) exudes her fierce strength and enduring pride- a true darling of the Capitol.
Already all the rage with the Capitol elite, Capitol families are lining up to view these astoundingly realistic hologram displays in person. Citizens can witness the artist’s hand-selected series of Capitol Citizen Living Portraits in person at SOCA this summer.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I is the first movie in the two-part finale of The Hunger Games franchise, based on the books by Suzanne Collins. In this chapter we follow heroine Katniss Everdeen's (Jennifer Lawrence) journey as she leads the districts of Panem in a rebellion against the tyrannical and corrupt Capitol. As the war that will determine the fate of Panem escalates, Katniss must decipher for herself who she can trust and what needs to be done, with everything she cares for in the balance. Francise Lawrence directs the adaptation written by Danny Strong and Lionsgate releases the film November 21st.
